DIY Fashion: Bow Necklace Tutorial

 Tu
Today I will be showing you guys how to make this cute bow necklace. It's a great simple accessory to spice up any outfit and so easy to make! You can have it just with a plain necklace chain, or add it to any old necklace you don't find useful anymore; I've added it on top of a old heart necklace, making it a more elegant accessory. So lets begin:

Materials you will need: White satin or a fabric of your choice, sizes roughly around 5x9 inches & 1.5x3.5 inches, a ruler, scissors, necklace chain depending on preference, and jump rings (optional)


Step 1: Fold the big piece of fabric in half (with the nicer side of the fabric on the inside) then sew the edge of the opening. After you've done that, inside-out the whole thing so that you will see that "nicer side of the fabric" again.


 Step 2: Next you will want to adjust the sem line so it is in the middle of the thing, rather than having it on the side. ↑ Like so ↑ This will make the other side a smooth, clean look.

Step 3: After you will want to fold it in half again (with that 'nicer side' on the inside again) and sew the edge of that; then inside it out again. ↑ Now it will look like the picture above ↑


Step 4: Now you will repeat step 1 with the smaller piece of fabric (fold in half, and sew the edge) and put a jumpring through it.

*Optional tip: Instead of putting the jumpring through the center piece, you can sew it on at the end, making it easier to put it through a chain*


Step 5: Once you have the smaller piece sewn, pinch the bigger piece in the center (this will be creating the bow look) and wrap the small piece around the middle to hold it in place then sew it as close as you can like the picture below. ↓



Step 6: Now you have to inside out that center piece carefully and your done! Add it to a chain or an old necklace and there you have a brand new accessory.
